Former Derry City captain, Kevin Deery’s association with the ‘Candy Stripes’ has ended.
And although the player has said some things in the media he might wish to reflect on, I prefer to rememeber him for the superb player he was.
From an early age Kevin was always destined to end up playing football at senior level and that’s exactly what he accomplished.
Kevin wasn’t just a good player he brought his own unique style and played in some of the ‘Candy Stripes’ greatest victories over the years.
He also played with a swashbuckling style that I hugely admired and few would disagreee that at the top of his game he was one of the best midfielders in the land.
Unfortunately, the midfielder was plagued by injuries and by his own high standards wasn’t the same player over the last few seasons.
He has stated that he still hopes to remain in football but no matter what he does, Derry fans will always remain grateful for some magnificent memories and a long service and wish him well wherever life takes him.
